Specialty Faucet Types – The Top 3
A pot filler faucet is a swing-out specialty faucet on a long, jointed arm, mounted over the stove. The jointed arm can be folded back out of the way when not in use. These specialty faucet types eliminate trips from the sink to the stove with heavy pots of water by allowing the cook easy access right above the cooking area.
Pot filler faucets have a multitude of uses. Such as filling a kettle for tea, filling large flower vases or water bottles, watering houseplants, and offering an alternate area for water access when the sink is occupied.
A filtration faucet typically has one handle for dispensing cold water and is attached to an under-the-counter water filtration system. The filtration faucet is also called a drinking water faucet or water dispenser faucet because it’s dedicated to producing cold, clean, filtered water for drinking.
By having a dedicated filtration faucet for drinking water, the need for single-serve plastic bottles is eliminated. With current estimates in the United States of 60 million plastic bottles thrown away every day, that could have a big impact on the environment. Coupling the filtration faucet with a good water filtration system can remove up to 97% of the sediment, chemicals, and pollutants found in tap water. Since the government closely regulates tap water and isn’t as particular about bottled water, a water filtration faucet and system in your home could provide cleaner water than you can find in some bottled water brands.
Bar Prep Faucet
Since prep sinks are smaller than standard kitchen sinks, a prep faucet is a scaled-down version of a standard faucet. Typically sporting a high, curved spout, bar faucets are available in single- or two-handle designs. The higher spout allows for easier access to the prep sink that a standard faucet can’t, and the smaller size won’t overpower the smaller-size prep sink.
